This Academy Award® winning song of 1961 by Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer gets a “Basie-esque” treatment in this swinging chart. Set in a 4/4 swing over walking bass, the vocal and instrumental lines play off each other, punctuated by chord hits and characteristic piano riffs. An optional improvised solo section completes the package. Sensational! Available separately: SATB, SAB, SSA, ShowTrax CD. Combo parts (tpt 1-2, tsx, tbn, gtr, b, dm) available as a digital download. Duration: ca. 3:55.
